This Fashionista's cool ensemble caught my attention because of the way her bold H&M satchel stood out against her dark colored pieces. Her American Apparel oversized chiffon shirt is a must-have item for Fashionistas this season. It can be worn in many ways and comes in an assortment of fun colors. I love how she incorporated American Apparel's classic circle scarf into her outfit on this particularly brisk spring day. Her floral shorts are also a trendy item. Lauren takes the popular floral print trend and makes it her own by wearing a dark pattern rather than the typical bright and bold floral print. Lauren and I stopped to talk briefly about her favorite spring trend, her style icon and her advice to aspiring Fashionistas.
Name: Lauren Anderson
CollegeFashionista: What is one of your favorite trends this spring?
Lauren Anderson: Dark floral print. I love taking the flirty girly print and edging it up.
CF: What or who is your biggest style inspiration?
LA: Lauren Conrad is my style icon. I am obsessed with her clothing and how she always does her own thing in the industry.
CF: What is one piece of advice you would give to aspiring Fashionistas?
LA: Always find a way to make popular trends your own.
How To: To recreate Lauren's look, rock an oversized shirt with a summer circle scarf. Rather than incorporate floral print into your outfit via blouses or dresses look for pants and shorts with pretty prints. I love this pair available at Karmaloop. They're edgy but flirty at the same time. Another cool piece is this skirt from NASTY GAL. Finally add a pop of color to your outfit with a bold bag. Check out this bright H&M satchel.
